Argon

For your analysis and quality control

Air Liquide Healthcare has over 20 years of proven experience in providing gases such as argon and associated equipment to the Australian market. Our highly-qualified staff strive to serve all of our patients and customers as professionally, effectively and efficiently as possible.

The atmosphere contains about 0.9% argon. As a neutral and colorless gas like nitrogen, it only exists in the air.

It cannot sustain life, but it is frequently used in certain applications due to its high level of chemical inertness.

Argon is used pure and in mixtures in hospitals for analyses and quality control. More particularly, argon is used as plasma gas in Inductive Coupled Plasma (ICP) emission spectrometry, blanket gas in Graphite Furnace Atomic Absorption Spectrometry (GFAAS) and as carrier gas in gas chromatography for various detector.

Typical applications

  • Quencing gas (pure or mixed with methane)
  • Zero, diluting and carrier gas for analysis
  • Cryoabalation

We understand you may have specific requirements, so if you require an argon mixture or grade not listed here please contact us.
